Re: Underrated Drummers

Fabrizio Moretti from The Strokes doesn't get his due as far as I'm concerned. Here's a pretty good article about his approach to drumming:

Re: Article on Neil P. from RATM Tom Commerford

Even just hearing one side of the story, I still see things from Neil's point of view. Not how I would have reacted, but I'm much more of a people person than Neil seems to be, and that's okay. Neil...

Re: DIY shell axle/rotate assembly?

I used two dining room chairs and a broom. You can see it in my gear thread.

Re: Who is the best British rock drummer of 2017?

It's a real shame a lot of you older guys haven't heard of these bands; most of them make music that'd be right up your alley. Guitar bands are back in style, at least in the UK.

Neat! I'd go pretty nuts over a '72 Porsche 911 Carrera RS wrap:

Re: Buy it and they will come...

I'm a car guy, so combining my passion for drums means I always have a few hatchbacks or station wagons around. It's a boon for logistics, and I don't mind driving if the other guys spot me for gas....

Re: Help finding Jojo Mayer video

Such a great video and a really tremendous piece of advice. I sent it to all of my drummer buddies, too.

Re: Not dead yet: Guitar Center

I dread my monthly trips to Guitar Center, but that Stick Club thing they have going is a pretty solid deal - $5 off a pair of sticks every month!

Also, from a gigging standpoint, I like the fact...

Re: How do you feel about the sax?

The lead guitarist of my band got me into David Sanborn. I wasn't really a huge fan of the saxophone before, but it has its place - and that place sounds great!

Re: Why don't pop songs have real drums?

I think pop music has gotten a lot less diverse over the last 15 years or so. At the turn of this century, you could hear stuff like Mariliyn Manson, Britney Spears, Linkin Park, *NSYNC, Limp Bizkit,...

Re: Amazing Ludwig Wrap

I really like that color. Classy and vintage-looking, like a wonderful sepia-toned photo. If I was in the market for a new Ludwig set, that'd definitely be in the running...

Re: 17 Things Local Bands Don't understand .

I disagree somewhat with the point about Facebook. It shouldn't be your only tool for promotion, but it's very useful for its networking properties alone.

Re: Led Zep and A Flat Six

Excellent video. Big-time car guy in addition to my drumming (hence the username) and owner of a proud but ragged '84 911 Carrera. There are few things as thunderous and harmonious as John Bonham and...

Re: Article in Modern Drummer from bermuda

All of this. His music is now getting to a point where second-generation listeners hear Weird Al's parody first, through their parents, and get confused when they hear the originals later on. That's...

Re: What is it with CL these days?!

You talked me into it. I just messaged the guy; if he still has it I'll try to get it from him for around $300. I may move it on to someone else after a while but I can definitely use some of those...

Re: Truth

I'd like to read the full interview sometime. A drumming idol of mine told me before a gig that you get so much sharper, so much faster by playing with people, and he's absolutely right.

You mean the old Ludwig pedal? Looks like a standard entry-level Tama pedal in the ad to me.

Re: What is it with CL these days?!

I honestly don't understand how this hasn't sold yet. If you take off about 20-30%, it's not a terrible deal. It's a well-written ad, too, and decent quality stuff. I'm halfway tempted to offer the...

Re: I will NEVER buy / own _______, and here's why.

Black hardware. I can't stand it, it looks cheap to me, and I'd be worried about it chipping and looking awful after rimshots and the like. Being seen on countless cheap drumsets doesn't help.

Re: Drum Center Of New Hampshire

Scored my Tama SLP snare and Zildjian A cymbal set from these guys! Great service and fast shipping. I hope I can make it out there and visit the new shop in person sometime.

Re: Suprisingly good kits

Several years back, I bought a four-piece Sound Percussion (Guitar Center store brand) shell pack (with some hardware) for around $200 as a Black Friday deal. 13" snare, 20" bass drum, 12" and 14"...

Re: Instantly recognizable drummers

Another vote for Bernard Purdie. His happiness and enthusiasm behind a drumset really comes through, in a subtle way, in his playing. The man is a being of pure joy. I've been trying (and failing) to...
